Real Ale Ray left this review about Lock & Barrel

A good sized micro that was formally a Locksmiths shop named " Knobs and Knockers". The interior consists of one room, finished in white painted walls and ceilings, an oak finished timber floor, some turquoise painted timber work and a small bar area towards the rear. There was a display board of various ironmongery on the left hand wall and a mural of Bromley's main street, back in the day. There was a good sized legible blackboard mounted on the left hand side of the bar. The cask beer was all served from stillage, stored in a cold room behind the bar and their choice of six keg was served from the bar. The cask line up on our visit was Tonbridge Old Chestnut Bitter, Brithop Shakermaker, Brockley Brewery Autumn Amber and Musket Ballpuller Bitter, all priced around the £3.80 and all of which were in excellent condition. The friendly and chatty barman, also gave us a decent taster selection of their keg beers, which I liked and my favourite was the Belleville Brewery Wicked Good Ale, which had a smoky pumpkin flavour. As described below, this is definitely a micropub you could spend some time in. Well worth a visit.

Friendly new micro just beyond the top end of Bromley with ales on cask & keg. As it turned out, we really should have just stayed here for the evening.
